Parent & Toddler Group

Now running for over thirteen years, so some of our graduates will now be leaving High School, our parent and toddler group is an integral part of our church life at Southlands.

10:00am-11:45am Wednesdays During Term Time

The group is for toddlers aged 0 to 3 1/2 years of age and meets in the Southlands Community Centre, accessed via the church car park at the top of Nunmill Street.

Most Wednesday mornings start with a choice of playthings and craft activities, such as painting, printing or salt-dough modelling. Break time is soon after 11:00 with pieces of fruit and a fruit squash drink for the toddlers and tea/coffee and a biscuit for parents and guardians. Soon after 11:20, parents and children can take part in a time of music and singing.

We do our utmost to provide a safe environment for children, but please be aware that parents / guardians are responsible for their children at all times.

Parents are asked to complete a registration form so we have a contact name address and phone number and an email address as well, if there is one. It is hoped that when registering, parents will say “Yes” to photographs which we can use in our church magazine and publicity leaflets, and on the website.

Parents should also bring something like an apple or an orange so the youngsters can have pieces of fruit at break time while the adults have coffee, tea or squash.

The charge is £1.00 per session for one adult/guardian with one child, plus 50p for each additional baby, child or adult.

For further information, contact the leader, Wyn Lawrence, on York 639231, or through the church office.
